Mission Statement

Our mission is to transform the lives of at-risk, vulnerable and orphaned children through access to medical care, education, and psycho-social support so they can be independent members of their communities and the world.

Description

Worldwide Orphans (WWO) was established in 1997 by Dr. Jane Aronson, a global pediatric specialist. WWO is a New York/New Jersey based 501(c)(3) international nongovernmental organization (INGO) headquartered in Maplewood, New Jersey.

Worldwide Orphans is transforming the lives of children and communities in need. We provide education, medical care, and psycho-social support in their local communities so that they can become confident, competent, thriving adults who will change the world around them.


To respond to the growing crisis of play deprivation among orphaned and vulnerable children, Worldwide Orphans (WWO) installs toy libraries in orphanages and community centers in the countries we serve.
A WWO Toy Library is packed full of colorful, wooden toys that teach children about color, spatial perception, fine motor coordination and language. Toy Libraries help children become active agents in their own environments, where they can safely explore their own intrinsic desire for play. They serve as a resource for caregivers to learn about child development and become an active participant in a child’s developmental trajectory.
